Kingfisher got payback against Heritage Hall led by Sternberger. His ability to shoot the ball and play with such a higher IQ than most players his age.
Micah Thomas 2019 PC North
Thomas gave one of the best offensive performances we will ever see at the state tournament. He scored 44 points in the semifinal game against Edmond Memorial to help PC North complete the upset.
It was fun watching an elite scorer get in the zone to where every time he touched the ball it wasn’t about if he was going to score but more importantly how he was going to the bucket.
Jacob Germany 2019 Kingston
Germany is one of the top 5 most talented players in the state and showed that in the 3A State Tournament. Specifically in the championship game, he scored 21 points and grabbed 12 rebounds.
